When our well pump shut down in the middle of the night and our garden irrigation system used the majority of the agricultural and fire protection water, we had to come together as a community to conserve water and change the way we think about it. Most of us are from cities or suburbs where water flows freely from the faucet. If something happens with the water, there is someone else to handle it. But this was really different.
What you’ll see in our Water video are highlights of conversations from the Water Summit on The Land with eco restoration expert John Liu, soil conservationist Ray Archuleta, and permaculturist Brock Dolman. These conversations present solutions that not only could benefit our land but also our neighbors and surrounding region.
